Load of rubbish!!!
We brought this dishwasher on the 30/10/2014. So far it has had two repairs on it, burnt out circuit board. Now last night it nearly caught on fire if it wasn't for my sense of smell, the house could've burnt down. Not bloody good enough! The machine should've lasted longer than this. Had to wash cutlery by hand!
This is just not good enough, we brought this machine when we built our new house, package deal, with oven, hotplate and range-hood, hope these items are safe. If we had the dishwasher on and left the house, we would not have a house ...
Purchased in October 2014.

Best Dish washer we have ever owned
This is far the best Dish Washer we have owned, previous ones were second hand and lasted a few years each but decided to buy New and have warranty. This Delonghi has proved well with the best dirty clean we have ever had. It has a separate slide out top tray for culturally and you can set it for small washers either using top or bottom compartments. Since we don't use it on a daily basis it is often used more so when we Host Dinner Party's. using it on our own with small loads we find the short setting excellent. The only issue I have is setti...ng in the wine glasses, I can't fit them in so they stand up right. But not fussed as they are easy to hand wash. Looking at other reviews I am surprised of the poor scores. However we Purchased a 3 year guarantee and if anything goes wrong we get a complete unit. I would believe that even if this product is discontinued we would be given Brand New unit of it's same value.
Utter waste of money
We bought this dishwasher in Dec 2017 and it does a crap job of drying the dishes, rarely dispenses the powder and does a mediocre job of washing the dishes. We have had it repaired once already for the heat pump back in May this year and have been unable to leave our dishwasher unattended for the past 10 weeks due to it continuously running and not stopping. We have been waiting for 7 weeks for the useless machine to be repaired a 2nd time and are still waiting. We have asked for our money back from The Good Guys with no luck. Worst purchase ever. Do not recommend.
Total piece of crap
Had it for 3 years. Within that time i have had it fixed at least 10 times. Constantly leaks, doesn't clean well. Just spent another $300 on it to get fixed and now leaking again. I think i bought a lemon never again. Could be a reason for it being discontinued..... After service is outrageous.
Stopped working just after its warranty.
Paid $800 for it. It did its job ok. Not the best at drying.
Also you need to manually turn it off after its cycle.
The dishwasher in general feels flimsy.
But last week i came home to find smoke coming from the back of it and it's only a few months past its 2 year warranty.
So i opened it up to find the problem, and found nothing just a blowen fuse which is soldered to the main PC board. Otherwise there is a handful of screws that hold the whole thing together.
Avoid this machine.
I give it 2 stars as it lasted 2 years.

Don't even think about it!!! Terrible
Purchashed for $600 so I should have known it would be bad. You really do get what you pay for. If you want clean dishes make sure you rinse everything to the point of it being clean anyway otherwise be prepared to run the never ending 3 hour cycle (that once took 8 hours) again. I agree with everyone else, the drying function is terrible and it's noisy and inconsistent.
I clean the filter every 2 weeks, run a cleaning tablet cycle every month and use good quality powder. We bought in November 2016 and it was just satisfactory for about a year but now it just continually brings me disappointment and shatters my hopes and dreams. I trusted you Delonghi....you took my money and betrayed my trust. Never again!!!
Not great design
Doesn’t dry dishes very well plates don’t fit in properly meaning spray arms can’t spin to clean would love to change to a different model if could. They cutlery drawer is also very shallow and second shelf you have to lay small plates in flat for the same reason as bottom shelf the spray arm cannot spin as it hit the plates, and after a short time of owning it it already has problems heating the water
Silver waste of money
Cannot tell you how good it is at cleaning dishes. Bought the unit just to modernise kitchen.
After only a few times (no more than 15) of use the On / Off switch started to play up.
You have to change the whole board cost $150.00 without labour.
No favourite features
Stay away from that brand.
Value For Money.
It's not a top dollar dishwasher so I don't expect top dollar results. The manual clearly states that you need to clean the filter & jets regularly (I do it about once a month). If you don't, then yes, it stops working properly. I agree with other users that say that it doesn't dry properly (in normal mode), that's why I turn on the extended drying function every wash - it adds 5 minutes to the cycle.
Terrible dishwasher that didn’t last 3 years
Dishwasher replaced in an investment property less than three years ago and a tenant reported the below which an electrician has confirmed:
Dishwasher does not clean dishes at all. Some of the spray nozzles appear blocked and drain pipe appears full. I have cleaned the spray nozzles out previously yet they appear to be clogged again. Dishwasher has never really cleaned dishes well since we moved in so doesn't get used much if at all. Went to use it the other day and appears far worse than ever again. Even after numerous washes dishes were still not clean. Does not seem to even dissolve the tablet.
I wish we bought it before. Great price!
It's a very professional and easy to use item.
We have it for a while without regret.
Washing is great, good cleaner and good looking too.
It's very low maintenance and very easy to personalize the functions. My wife loves using it too. I wish we bought it before. Great price!
Do not buy this dishwasher.
Nothing fits properly in this dishwasher. We have had it repaired under the 12 month warranty 4 times and the heating element looks like it's broken again. Seriously the worst electrical product I have ever purchased. I asked for a refund on the 4th time it broke down and got no where. There is now a free one on my front lawn if you'd like to toucher yourself. What a piece of garbage
This dishwasher is great for the purpose we bought it for. We are going to rent out our house so didn't want to spend loads on a fancy dishwasher. This one was a great price and it does everything we need it to. It does a great wash cycle and is quiet when in use.
Does the Job well
My old dishwasher finally gave up, so looking at others in the store spotted this one, did some research and decided to purchase one. Love all the different settings that it has, plenty of room for lots of settings, usually run mine every second day. The only thing I don't like it water seems to stay around a bit, so normally open the door when load finished to help dishes dry.

The water stopped heating after 1 year. As it was still under a 2 year warranty, the repair was covered however still disappointing and inconvenient. Also the spray arm under the top rack often comes off. It can be clipped back but can be annoying. I think it's a design flaw. Other than that it's fine. Dishes come out clean so that's the most important thing.

This dishwasher is so much more better than our last. The fitted cutlery tray works really well. I couldn’t live without the adjustable upper basket. This fits all of our bigger items and dinner plates. Including our cutting boards. The 1hour wash is for not very dirty dishes and works really well. The main wash for 2.5 hours is great. Plates come out dry. Compared to our older machine this works really well and more efficient.
So badly designed
If only you could try before you buy because I would not buy this model. So badly designed from a user perspective, small side plates placed in the middle tray hit the cutlery tray, dinner plates place in the bottom tray don't allow the water fan to spin. Dishes come out still wet. What a heap of junk, I've only owned it for 5 weeks and it's going. The thought of putting up with this m/c is stressing me out. I'm cutting my losses and getting a different brand.
Functional, but barely acceptable - Avoid this dishwasher
1.Reasonable price. 2. Adjustable height upper tray. 3. It washes dishes.
1. Tray design is terrible. Specifically, the separate cutlery tray is annoying and unnecessarily fiddly to load/unload. The cup/glasses tray is designed in such a way as to make loading precarious with a high risk of items toppling during the wash. Too small for anything other than small bowls, small cups and small glasses. Lower tray is not well suited to larger items such as pots and pans. It's necessary to put tumblers and wine glasses on...
This dishwasher does not allow you to wash plates AND glasses or glasses AND cutlery! The space between each tray is too low to allow it. I have broken so many glasses when you push the tray in all the glasses fall over. And these glasses are not particularly tall...
Had constant issues with this dishwasher. It would never dry dishes, couldn't fit many large dishes in, inconsistently cleaned and constant re washing of dishes. In the end we had to get rid of it because it came up with an error we couldn't get rid of. Refused to wash or turn on.

Questions & Answers
I bought DeLonghi freestanding dishwasher years ago (do not remember the model). When I select say 54 minutes washing program, it initially starts well for one minute but always stays at 53 minutes. Any helps?
My cycle of 2 hours and 30 minutes has started taking up to 4 hours and not cleaning the dishes. Any ideas?
